Mistwalker’s smartphone RPG Terra Battle had quite the run since launching in October 2014, but its journey is coming to an end on June 30, 2020. Mistwalker shared a notice of termination with the details and a thank you message for the fans for playing all these years.
Terra Battle will terminate service on June 30, 2020 at 0:00 UTC. The game’s in-game “Energy” currency is no longer available for purchase, but those who still have any will get to use it until the game’s service termination. Keep in mind that support related to data transfer and recovery of game data will also terminate on June 15, 2020 at 14:59 UTC. In addition to the Terra Battle game service termination on June 30, all user support will also close on the same day.
Here’s a message from producer Hironobu Sakaguchi:
It is with deep regret that I inform you, service for Terra Battle will be terminated.
Terra Battle’s test version was released in Canada back in September of 2014, and the game went on to officially release in the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany and Spain in October of the same year. Finally, the game was available in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in April of 2015.
I am so grateful for all the fans who played Terra Battle for nearly six years.
It feels as though our conception of the “Pincer Shogi” mechanic happened in the distant, nostalgic past.
This game was also our first smartphone service-type RPG. I personally learned a lot from this experience, and am constantly reminded that “there are no paths that aren’t worth taking.”
I am very thankful to have had such an experience.
Currently, Mistwalker is hard at work developing our next title on the Apple Arcade called FANTASIAN. This game goes back to my roots in the Famicom (NES) era, and I plan to bring this to life using dioramas. Development for the game is currently moving at full speed and I hope to see you all in the next “world.”
Thank you for your continued support.
